There can be twists and turns that just can’t happen in pre-written material; there’s a huge amount of interactivity – characters can be more fleshed out and things don’t get missed. You get more bang for your buck, you get fantastic stories and you have fun spread out over a longer period of time."

Half Life has a story? I thought it was "here is a crowbar, now go west or something"

I saw Half Life 1 and 2 as a successful experiment to have the player find things out for himself. To not have his/her hand held along a narrow story path full of lengthy cut scenes and other typical game story telling methods.

You experienced the game as if you were living in the world itself, experiencing what happens as it unfolds as you would in real life. It's amazing, but you've got to have a certain intellect to appreciate what it did as far as story telling in gaming went.
